Conservative Leader Erin O'Toole tore into Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's new cabinet lineup today, saying he's assembled a group of "largely inexperienced and ideological individuals" that pose a threat to the country's national unity and post-pandemic economic recovery. In a statement released as ministers were still being sworn in at Rideau Hall, O'Toole said Trudeau's cabinet picks are "yet another example" of his "record of style over substance." "Today's changes to the cabinet represent j

SYDNEY (Reuters) -All fully-vaccinated Australian citizens and permanent residents will be able to leave the country without a special exemption from Nov. 1, authorities said on Wednesday, as Australia eases coronavirus restrictions amid a rise in vaccination rates.

MILAN (AP) — AC Milan again struggled in a 1-0 win that saw it move three points clear at the top of Serie A on Tuesday. Olivier Giroud scored the only goal of the match in the 14th minute to help Milan move clear of second-place Napoli, which hosts Bologna on Thursday. The Rossoneri were still dealing with an injury crisis, but defender Theo Hernández was fit for a place on the bench after recovering from the coronavirus.

OTTAWA (Reuters) -The Bank of Canada signaled on Wednesday it could hike interest rates as soon as April 2022 and said inflation would stay above target through much of next year, due to higher energy prices and supply bottlenecks. The central bank held its key overnight interest rate at 0.25%, as expected, and said it was ending its bond-buying program, citing Canada's robust economic growth, high COVID-19 vaccination rates, and strong employment gains. "We now expect slack to be absorbed sooner, and that signals that we will be considering raising interest rates sooner than we previously thought," Bank of Canada Governor Tiff Macklem told reporters in Ottawa after the rate decision.

The provincial government announced Tuesday that it is spending $20 million this year to hire 193 new inspections staff and launch a proactive inspections program in Ontario's long-term care homes. Proactive inspections were all but stopped by the province before the pandemic, as a CBC News investigation showed that only nine out of 626 homes in Ontario actually received so-called "resident quality inspections" in 2019. The long-term care sector was devastated by COVID-19, with a Canadian Armed

Citing continued community transmission of COVID-19 in Behchokǫ̀, Dr. Kami Kandola, the territory's chief public health officer, said she is extending the containment order for the community until Nov. 8.

New modelling projects daily COVID-19 cases and hospital admissions in Alberta will continue to decline if the province stays the course. University of Victoria physics professor and member of British Columbia's independent COVID-19 modelling group Dean Karlen says it's been a rapid drop — around three or four per cent per day, faster than in BC. "Frankly, [I'm] really surprised how fast that turned around," he said. "That's remarkable." The analysis — the 11th such release from the group — show
An estimated 30 million to 50 million doses of Johnson & Johnson's COVID-19 vaccine made early this year sits idle in Emergent BioSolutions Inc's plant in Baltimore awaiting a green light from U.S. regulators to ship, two sources familiar with the matter said. The agency must still inspect and authorize the plant before Emergent can ship newly manufactured drug substance, one of the sources said. The FDA in April halted operations at Emergent's production facility after J&J's vaccine was found to be contaminated with material from AstraZeneca's COVID-19 shots, which were also being manufactured there at the time.

NEW YORK (AP) — Days before the final votes are cast in an election likely to make him Manhattan’s first Black district attorney, Alvin Bragg is showing just how different a prosecutor he might be.
